Finally accepting reality, Google is letting go of its lame Google+ feature. Originally meant to be a social-media platform rivaling Facebook, Google+ proved to be an underused, abject failure. I personally used the system maybe once or twice, and I can't say I'm all that bothered to see it go. Like a burst and tattered appendix, Google+ needs to be excised and forgotten, and the day for the appendectomy seems, at long last, to have arrived: I just received notice of the removal of a host of hard-to-notice Google+ features—buttons and functions and such—that will be yanked from Blogger, Gmail, and Google Docs. Well... good riddance.

I believe I tried out Google+ at one point, just out of curiosity--and then completely forgot about it.
